    But when is said Rebels game? 1530/1330 tomorrow afternoon.
    I'm Highlighting these times because tonight in Melbourne, St Kilda are playing GWS. Whereas tomorrow, Collingwood are playing Carlton.

    In what universe was that decision thought to be a good one when you factor in expected crowds. Even if the super rugby fixtures came out before the AFL ones, you would think that a code bleeding from an artery & on life support in Melbourne already would have had the thoughts to look into moving that fixture forward a wee bit!

    Morons, they're all morons
    I hear what you are saying, but from the broadcasters perspective, to have pretty much back to back games on Saturday through to Sunday morning is better option for them, the channel doesn't change. They will do what is best for them and probably don't even look at what matches are in the other codes. If they had to consider all other codes and fixtures, it would be even harder to set what is already a very complex schedule.

    It's huge part of the current problem with Rugby in Australia and in particular the current format of Super Rugby at the moment. Both of the other major codes had a game on last Friday night except Rugby. The ARU likes to waffle on about winning the hearts and minds of Australians but give free kicks to rival codes. The broadcasters have a say in the schedule but the final sign off would come from SANZAAR/ARU.
